Happy New Year!!

Our house still looks like a Christmas bomb went off in it so this morning we told the kids that when we got the house clean we could go sledding...Tyson is still on steroids so he spent most of the morning begging for snuggles.  For him snuggles means he sits on my lap on the couch and we watch TV.  He requires snuggles at least once a day, most of the time he asks for them multiple times a day, and when he's on steroids snuggling all day long would be preferable.  He always looks a tad zombie-ish when he is on steroids, I'm not sure if the picture captures the look or not..
One of the reasons we thought it was kind of funny that they told us to call if he turns yellow was cause he always has a pale yellowish hue when he is on steroids...we also made several jokes on the way home about casually giving them a ring if our son's liver started to fail...I'm sure you had to be there to think it was funny, cause it's not funny, but that's why it was funny...and you make dumb jokes to keep the worry from making you crazy...cause it's crazy to worry so much, especially when the doc isn't worried that much...so you try not to worry but you do anyway, and so...crazy.
 Soooo we got the house clean enough to pass inspection and went sledding
 Ty had so much fun he outlasted Brenna, Brooke, and Merin. They sat in the car for about an hour while we did several 'one more times'.
 He even slid down without a sled a few times.  2 1/2 hours of sledding wore all of us out!
He lasted until about 8:45 tonight and then asked me to put him to bed...so this is what he was doing when 2013 began. 1 year 8 months of treatment down, 1 year 7 months to go!!!  He is officially over halfway done!!  Happy New Year!!
